Abstract:     
The United States has had a long, storied history dealing with piracy. While it has had success in getting convictions under the Offenses Clause against pirates who attacked U.S. flagged shipping it does have its limits. This article examines the use of the Offenses Clause in the recent prosecutions of crimes on the high seas.
